    Just to get to know you guys...
    A) Where are you from?
    B)Do you have a dance related occupation.
    C) Fans or Performers in musical theatre?

    Here are my answers, so you know..
    A) I'm originally from Montreal Quebec, but I've grown up in Ottawa (Canada, not Illinois).
    B) Not I, unfortunately...I have yet to go to college so right now I'm kind of doing the minimum wage thing- waitress/retail. Fun though I'm a people person.
    C) Fan and Performer. Drive everyone crazy. Im sure everyone is sick of my stories. Hehe. Not here though, i feel right at home!:)

    Oh my goodness! :D :D :D Where in Philly? Hawthorne pool. Hmm. Isn't that at 60th and Lancaster? If so, it's less than a fifteen minute walk from where I grew up. Trying to remember, and put things together. Are you a West Philly guy?

    Wynnefield here, aka West Philly. Gompers Elementary, Beeber Middle School, Overbrook, then Girls High for high school.

    Nice to meet you, brotha. :D :D

    Hey, Hey that's crazy! I'm from Germantown--Wissahickon Ave. John B. Kelly Elementary, Pickett Middle School, John F. Kennedy H.S. (South Jersey). Hawthorne Park pool is actually in Willingboro, NJ--I used to spend a lot of summers out there. :)

    Now it's gonna bug me until I figure out the name of that pool around the corner from where I grew up!

    But yeah, I am familiar with Germantown. Spent way too many hours on the corner of Germantown and Chelten, on the way to or from music lessons and orchestra rehearsals. Took violin, flute and music theory at Settlement Music School (On Germantown, a few blocks north of Chelten) for lots of years. Fond memories.

    By the way, can you get a decent cheesesteak where you are? There are two franchise places here. Charlie's Steakery, and Philly Connection. Both have pretty good cheesesteaks. The rolls are soft, though. Nobody seems to realize that authentic cheesesteaks are on hard Italian rolls. The sandwich was invented in South Philly, after all. Where the Italians live! (Sorry. Pet peeve of mine.)

    1) Sacramento, Ca (currently living in CT)
    2) Right now I am a professional grad student... no-- really!... that's how I pay my rent! -- dance is for fun/sanity.
    3) Although I have been in a couple of musicals I'd only consider myself a fan.

    That's really neat about pygmalian and youngsta! NIFTY!!

    No I can't get a decent cheesesteak anywhere around here :evil: That would be heaven! My Dad did give me a link to a place in South Philly that will overnight one too you though. I'll need to find that link!

    I do order tastykakes online though :D

    Appleton, WI (not far from Green Bay...home of the Packers...the big green and gold...not really a football fan, but felt the need to add that bit of trivia. :tongue:)

    No...I wish I were a professional dancer...hopefully someday I'll open my own studio.

    Huge musical theater fan...but never performed nor do I have friends in the biz (professional or non)

    I'm reviving old thread here :lol: ......!

    A) This question has no short/easy answer from me. We are the biggest mutts out there :lol: since we come from a long line of immigrants (with relatives all over the world). I was born in Taiwan. My Mum was born in Thailand, Dad was born in Cambodia (with possibly French in him). Now we live in Melbourne, Australia.

    The only place in the world I've visited so far that I felt 'blend-in' physically is Tahiti :shock: ! Now all I need is to speak French so I can fool people 8) ..........

    B) No. Just a fanatic :p !

    C) Absolutely...! But I havn't been that involved since I've discovered salsa.......

    Cool. By the way I've added this to the member introductions sticky in DA.

    A) Grew up in Tanzania, East Africa. Immigrated to the States summer 1995.

    B) No

    C) Not a performer, but a fan.

    1. Born in New Jersey, lived in New York and Missouri, yet lived most of my life in New England.

    2. No

    3. Not a performer, wouldn't call myself a fan, but I'd take in an occasional show.

    1. Nashville TN, but born in NY and will always be a Yankee fan!

    2. Dance is on my resume as an actor--but lately I've been cast in many roles where I'm supposed to be a really bad dancer; the show I did in November and December had a whole ballroom sequence in it that I was just supposed to mess up! :lol:

    3. I'm trained mostly as a straight actor, but it seems like over the last two years I've done mostly musicals.

    Salsachinita, how about when we meet in Tahiti, we practice our French there together, seulement un peu sous les etoiles qui brulent pendant la nuite, ma chere Salsachinoise.... :together:
